Snake Heap

Year without a Summer???

Things are lining up that we end up with no summer this year, in most places! Why you might ask??? In the past month the earth has seen an unprecedented rise in volcanic activity five of which were major eruptions and three other major eruptions are pending. What consititutes a major eruption you might ask? One or more eruptions that puts ash 25,000 - 50,000 feet into the atmosphere. The five recent eruptions have been closer to 50,000 feet!

Check out Volcano Live for recent activity

Colima - Mexico
Llaima - Chile
